Grown Up Easter Basket Inspiration

Grown Up #Girlboss Easter Basket Inspiration!

One of my favorite requests to receive from friends and family is my help finding a gift for someone special. Over the years I’ve been asked to put together Easter baskets and I thought I’d share some of my favorite things to include for a non-food/candy basket for grown up girls! These photos are of a ‘mock’ basket of ideas that include gifts I have personally received that would be perfect to give for Easter! (Of course, I’m keeping all of these items, but you get the idea!)

I love seasonally packaged makeup like this darling bunny shaped Lipsmacker! Bonus: It also smells and tastes amazing! The Anastasia Beverly Hills highlight palette is a new beauty release and very hot right now. All the cool girls are going to be trying to get their hands on this one for Spring! Bath bombs are another currently trending item. Try to find some in fresh Spring colors like these from Forever21, Urban Outfitters or Etsy.

This fun-sized-Instagram-worthy Instax camera is one of my favorite things I ever received in a brand PR package and it makes the perfect gift! You can pick one up from here or here. If you know her size consider some athletic gear like a Fitbit watch strap or a pair of trainers. I don’t know any girl who doesn’t love a fresh new pair of gym kicks! These pale pink ones by Nike are comfy and chic!

Mugs are one of the easiest gifts to find and give. There are always cute ones for ever season at places like Target and Michael’s. This pink and gold “I Get You” mug is from TJMaxx and was gifted to me on Valentine’s Day by a dear friend.

The basket and filling is the easiest part. Choose something a little ‘nicer’ than your typical dollar-bin straw version and opt for a metal style in silver or gold. This one was only $5 from HomeGoods and I picked up the squiggle shred from the greeting card section of the drugstore.

You can always tuck a few seasonally shaped chocolates somewhere in the basket, just to make it quintessentially Easter, but it’s not a requirement! I tried to make this whole process as simple as possible, so if you have a husband/boyfriend or someone who isn’t super creative with Seasonal gifting to worry about, send this link their way! Hopefully they’ll be pointed in the right direction and be inspired!


50 Shades of Gray Paint

For the past month (since temporarily closing my Etsy shop) I’ve been receiving frantic e-mails and DMs from brides in desperate need of sequin hangers and gold foil graphics for their wedding websites! Y’all know I’m trying to move from Germany to America and remodel a several thousand square foot house too, right?! Well I remember what it was like to try to plan a wedding (I planned mine in 3 months!) and I couldn’t handle to desperation in you sweet bride’s messages anymore! I opened the shop back up yesterday and have since received 47 custom order inquiries! You ladies are the BEST! Now, I told all of you though that your orders are not going out till July 13th but that didn’t seem to deter any of you (bless your souls) so I will work hard to get those hangers and graphics out to you ASAP if you will all keep being patient with me 🙂

I thought you might like to see a little peek at my temporary work space though! My home office space was one of the first rooms I had painted and really love the deep grayish blue it turned out. The color reminds me of the sea after a storm. The entire house is painted different shades of the color you’ll see in the photos below. So yes… 50 shades of gray haha!
